IMCCE has been implementing a camera network for measuring
the orbits of meteors and fireballs. One of our goals is to set up
such a network, equipped with a fish eye lens, in order to monitor the whole sky. Presently only the Pic du Midi Observatory and The Paris observatory are part of this network. Friday, October 21, 2011, around 21:10, the camera Paris observed its first meteor storm low on the horizon. It has been observed by several other camera of the network REFORM. The car crossed the center of France.
IMCCE is also setting up another network equipped with high spatial resolution cameras for the determination of the orbits of meteors.
